38 Badass Affirmations That Will Fuel Your Competitive Spirit
If you say it enough, YOU will make it true.
An affirmation is a positive statement that can condition your subconscious mind to help you develop a more positive perception of yourself. They absolutely work. And if you repeat them enough (out loud or in your head), they will come true.
They can help you eliminate negative thinking and overcome a negative self-perception. They help you focus on the mountaintop and ignore all the possible ways you can fall to your death.
When you doubt yourself, they instill confidence. When you feel weak they make you strong. When you want to give up, they will not let you.
Most importantly, powerful affirmations are essential to the development of the competitive spirit. They turn Johns into Dons. They make life simple because they narrow down the choices to that all important question of “What do I want?”
With the help of affirmations, the answers straddle along the lines of either MORE or BETTER.
The only way to get MORE or BETTER is to push yourself until you get it. The competitive spirit is your driving force behind that. And you are in charge of your competitive spirit.
It listens to you. So make sure you are constantly pumping it up. Negative thinking puts out that fire. Positive, inspirational statements fuel it. Here are 38 badass affirmations that will fuel your competitive spirit:

What is the best way to use this list?
Obviously, you should not try to memorize all 38 of these. The last thing you want is to have 38 different things floating around in your head.
My advice is to go through the list and pick 3-5 statements that really do it for you. The 3-5 statements that energize you and make you want to punch a hole through the wall. Those are the ones that hit home. Those are YOURS.
Go write those down on a piece of paper and put them somewhere you can see them every day. Above your desk. On your bathroom mirror. Wherever. Just make it so that those statements are shoved in your face every day.
The statements will begin to stick over time. Say them out loud when you are alone. Repeat them in your head whenever you can. More is better.
The guy who constantly thinks “I’m a loser. Why am I a loser?”… That guy is usually a loser. And the guy who is always thinking how much of a beast he is? That guy is usually a one man wrecking crew bulldozing through life.
“I am a competitor.”
That is the one statement that should be on everyone’s list. You are either a competitor who is constantly hustling his ass off for something or you are a regular guy just going through the motions.
If you want to actually self-improve and get noticeable results, you have to take action. Otherwise, you’re just another forum junkie who spends his days theorizing with strangers and buying self-development books that end up collecting dust.
It’s very simple. Become a competitor who is hell-bent on getting what he wants. Take a look at this guy:
That is LeBron James during Game 6 of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals. That was arguably his greatest career performance to date. With the Heat facing elimination in Boston, James torched the Celtics for 45 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists.
Take a look at him. That is a competitor. That is a guy who is one with his competitive spirit. He’s a monster. He will destroy anyone that gets in his way. There was no way he was going to let the Heat lose that night in Boston.
I bet I can guess some of the stuff that was going on in his head at the time. A lot of his internal dialogue could probably be found on that list. You better believe LeBron was thinking to himself “I am unstoppable” and “This is my time.”
Whatever he was saying to himself, it was all rooted in that one affirmation… “I am a competitor.”
You get what you want by becoming a competitor.
That’s what you have to be to get what you want. It’s very rare that the Universe will just lay everything out there on a silver platter for you. If you bank on what is being given to you, then prepare for an unfulfilled life.
I have said it once and I will say it again. You are going to have desires throughout the course of your life.
As a guy, you are going to want money, power, and women. You do not get those by keeping your head down and playing with the cards you were dealt. And you do not get it by spending countless hours reading about the experiences of others.
You get it by becoming a competitor… one who competes against his fellow man and more importantly, himself.
Competitors are the ones who get results because they have desires and are not afraid to go after them. They don’t care. They know what needs to be done and they do it.
Excuses and even discouragement from those closest to you may cause some doubts… but that’s where your badass affirmations come into play.
